The Top Ten

Achilles Last Stand
Second best Led Zeppelin song only to Stairway to Heaven of course, this song is great. Easily most underrated. "the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth, " classic.


It was really close in my opinion between this and ten years gone. The latter nails the guitar solo. Achilles last stand really takes you on a journey. It has so many awesome quality the guitar and drum riffs are the beginning of metal music (yes I know iron maiden came out a few months prior to the release of this song)
thank god people finnaly get me it not only the most underrated led zeppelin song its also the greatest.


[Newest]Only they can play for 10 1/2 minutes without it seeming to drag on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Nice references too.

2Ten Years Gone
My favourite piece of music by the greatest band of all time. This song is unbelievably touching, it can leave one literally in tears. Some of Jimmy page's best work in overdubbing, he used over TEN different guitar tracks in this song. The most essential piece of music on Physical Graffiti. This song will always hold a special place in my heart.
This is one of Zeppelin's most personal and emotional songs and it shows with its beautiful song writing and build up.


Give it a listen if you haven't already, and you will know for sure why this is their #1 underrated song.
[Newest]Very true it's really one of the best but not appreciated

3When the Levee Breaks
The fact that it isn't #1 on every single list proves that it's underrated.


Based on a blues classic by Memphis Minnie, it should't be among their underrated songs. Just listen to the great intro, it knocks you over. To me one of their best tunes.
One of their best songs for sure, the drumline and guitar riffs are phenomenal. Best intro I've heard in a song personally.

4How Many More Times
The riff explains itself
Every live concert of this beautiful rock somphony is orchestrated in a diffrent unique way. Lyrics can't be more true as well
Unreal song. I'll never forget the first time
I heard it...

5No Quarter
Brilliant riff, brilliant vocals with great dreamy effects, completely underrated
John Paul Jones at his finest, especially the Song Remains the Same version, with Jonesy's "Fantasy Sequence", as a keyboard/guitar player, I feel that this is a song that represents the culmination of Zeppelin's keyboard-led era.


The tool version is better.

6Four Sticks
Should definitely be up higher on the list. Awesome riff and great bass line. I bet you played this song for people and they could never tell you the name of it.
Unbelievably good song. Should be up there with Kashmir and Stairway
Great song, well they all are

7Bring It On Home
Love blues song with little country touch, and old days fame of harmonica use and of course not to forget bonham's awesome work.
It's worth to listen dude!
Great blues intro then Page's guitar riff blasts it away
Starts off slow and simple and then blows you away. And Jimmy's riff is amazing!


8What Is and What Should Never Be
One of their best

9Out On the Tiles
Syncopated and heavy, a beast of a hard rock song with a melodic chorus.

I really wonder why this didn't catch on... (? )
It should be more known. It's so joyfull and musically perfect, a great song by Led Zeppelin.

10The Rain Song
In my opinion this is the greatest acoustic song of all time and it has such a great strum pattern. Nobody could top Robert's lyrics on this one much different from "the way you squeeze my lemon. "
Close your eyes an listen to at least the first two minutes, if you don't mind. Despite its length of nine-ish minutes, I used to listen to this track every night for a fairly long time.


This song is simply amazing.

The Contenders

11Moby Dick
This is so underrated. The version at Royal Albert Hall makes it one of my favourites

12The Ocean
Severely underrated. The riff is so powerful and gets you pumped up immediately.

13Going to California
Super relaxing and the mesh of calm guitars is beautiful. Like any other Led song the lyrics are enchanting! I couldn't believe this hadn't been added
I really don't think this song is underrated by Zep fans!

14Thank You

15Communication Breakdown

16Living Loving Maid
This one should be an all time classic! Epic riff!
Definitely. This is the song that got me into the band at a young age. I love it.
Great song but not underrated.

17Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
I'm very sure most of you have not even heard of this song. Please, I love it, I want you all to know it. If you do already know it, THANKS!
This song is what makes Zeppelin transcend genres... Awesome song that you can't help but stomp along to
A song dedicated to Robert's dog, Strider.
Aw, caught you smiling at me, that's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree so fine

18Ramble On
This song is WAY too underrated. If someone talks about their favourite led zeppelin song, they never say Ramble On! It's an amazing song, but everybody is so hung up on Stairway to Heaven that it's often ignored.

19Fool In the Rain
I didn't even know this was so underrated! I love this song so much, I though everyone who knew Led Zeppelin knew this song!

WELL, There's a light in your eye that keeps shining... Like a star that can't wait for the night... I hate to think I've been blinded, baby...
An INCREDIBLY underrated song. Sure it's not typical Led Zeppelin but that doesn't matter. Certainly the best song on In Through The Out Door.
Underrated maybe 10 or 15 years ago but in Orlando its one of the most played Zepp songs on the radio today (2013)

20Good Times Bad Times
This song is always 10th or under on these lists when it's an awesome song and is one of my favorites.
This song is amazing!
